There may be times when your coworkers don’t like you. Being able to recognize the warning signs may help you to change the things that have made you an outsider.Check out the signs that your colleagues aren’t your friends.
1. You’re invisible.
Probably the clearest sign that you’re not well liked is that people don’t want to talk to you. If you try to engage your coworkers in conversation or simply make eye contact and they breeze by like you don’t exist, they’re most likely not too thrilled with you.
2. You’re the talk of the office - and not in a good way.
People don’t usually don’t whisper about others, when they have something nice to say. If you find yourself the source of hushed talk or nasty gossip, you might have a serious workplace problem.
3. You're getting bad body language vibes.
Coworkers express their displeasure through their movements, and not just words alone. If you’ve noticed your coworkers rolling their eyes or sneering when you speak, that’s not a good sign. They may also move away from you in the break room or speed up and go in the other direction when you come down the hall.
4. You’re always in trouble.
There may be a workplace conspiracy brewing against you, if you constantly find yourself in the doghouse. Coworkers who don’t like you may rat you out to the boss for the smallest infraction. Things can get even worse when it’s management that has a problem with you.
5. People don’t seem to trust you.
If your ideas are constantly being questioned and management is constantly looking over your shoulder,there may be trust issues at play. When people deem you untrustworthy, personal fondness tends to fly out of the window.
6. Everyone talks down to you.
Your co-workers may be condescending to you if they sometimes speak to you as if you’re a child or speak to you veeeery sloooowly through a nasty smirk. People don’t usually condescend to someone they like.
7. You’re unwelcome.
They may not like you, if they spend their after-work hours grabbing dinner at a restaurant or drinks at a bar together, but you’re not invited.
Sometimes your coworkers may have a genuine gripe against you. However, people are often ostracized at work for foolish, mean or unfair reasons.
